Tuition for online programs is the same as for on-campus, in-state rates. We lock in tuition rates for four years with continuous enrollment. Fees for the online programs are substantially less than for the on-campus programs.
For tuition and fee policies, rates and calculators, please refer to the off-campus (distance learning) tuition and fees calculator for Undergraduate Students at: http://tuition.siuc.edu/calc.html.
The integrity of our online programs are maintained by using remote proctoring. This allows you to take your exams from almost anywhere! All students are required to purchase an external USB webcam to participate in remote proctoring.
Courses will require students to purchase textbooks, calculators, and/or other materials. The cost for textbooks for either program range from $1000 to $2000 depending on whether the student prefers new hard-cover texts, ebooks, used books, or rented books. Some custom books are required.
